1791 launches with American made clothing line inspired by US history


On the day that Glenn left cable news to found a new network, GBTV, he announced that he would be launching a new clothing line to help fund Mercury One, a non-profit initiative that aims to fix America “one town” at a time. Glenn named the clothing line 1791 after the year that the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution were ratified.

“It’s kind of like my Newman’s Own,” Glenn explained.

In the same way that Newman’s Own helped fund many of Paul Newman’s philanthropic endeavors, all net proceeds of 1791 merchandise will fund Glenn’s own philanthropic project – Mercury One.

Glenn has said on radio many times over the summer that Mercury One will endeavor to connect people who want to help with projects and causes that are looking for manpower. Glenn has said that rather than rely on governments to fix the problems facing the country, Americans need to start fixing things themselves.

“There are more people that want to help than that need help and we have to fix our country one person, one community, one town, one state at a time,” Glenn said.

“When we start to stand together and we start to help each other, when we are like Joplin, we will fix America.”

CAJ note: Our Word Boss just received the debut “Death to Tyranny” T-shirt. The shirt is really well made, good quality material, and an ample cut for the size. We’re pretty sure it won’t be his only 1791 purchase and we can all feel good knowing that our shopping is helping fellow citizens!
